Love revisiting your site Joe! My 4xgreat-grandmother was Jane (Jenny) Graham from Glenwhirry, who married William Beggs. She was born 1802, and died in January 1872. Of their known 9 children, most came to Australia, including my 3xgreat-grandparents James Beggs and Helena McAuley. Jenny Graham and William lived their entire lives around Ballygelly... her death certificate notes Glenwhirry, and she rests in Ballymena. Still searching for her birthplace and parents.

My granda used to talk about about James jemmy Hope telling me he was a massive part of history in our family and it was something to be very proud of! We have been to the Ulster museum to visit his exhibition and see all the artifacts and find out more about him so it’s nice to see that there is a few websites about him also

My ggggrandfather William Graham came to Ottawa from Taplah (?), Monagham, in about 1822. He brought his wife Elizabeth Fleming, and 2 children, William and Elizabeth.I don\'t know anything about their life in Ireland, but there are now many Grahams in Ottawa, both from Scotland and Ireland.
Love your site.

Ancestor William Henry Graham, supposed to have left Ireland from the family home in Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Ulster. They went to New Brunswick, Canada and moved west to Petersborough, Ontario, Canada. My great grandfather, George Wilson Graham, moved to Harrison County, Michigan, USA. His son, my grandfather, moved farther west to Pasco, Washington where my father was born. I\'m having trouble finding the path back to Ireland, thence to Scotland, where I felt I was \"home\" when I visited in 1997. Would like to trace the family back to Scotland.

I read your info about the Whiterock Housing Estate. I believe my ancestors - the Kirkwoods - farmed at Whiterock Farm in the 1800\'s, I assume where the housing estate was built. Would anyone have any information on the Kirkwoods? I\'m hitting a dead end before William (born about 1820) though I know from his marriage registration his father was James. Anything would be appreciated, Judy

Great site but I don\'t see any info on the stories of the Protestant communities in these areas. The communities who lived in these areas and were sadly pushed out by sectarian violence etc. Any chance you could cover these communities?

Hello Joe,
I found your very informative site as I have been trying to learn more about Arthur Hamill, JP, and his family. Family legend tells that my 2x great grandmother Mary Kearney was a descendant or relative of Arthur Hamill, and I am trying to prove or disprove this. My grandmother was born in Belfast. I would love to hear from you if possible.
Cheers, and great job on the site!
Diane
